Welcome to 2011.
As husbands and wives, it’s a fresh start. For God it’s simply one more day in the life He’s called us to faithfully live. He has a plan for every day, and as married couples He has a plan for our relationship to grow and mature. The choices we make each day will either say “yes” or “no” to His plan. Although most of us probably never blatantly tell God NO, when we choose to do one thing, we must ask ourselves what we won’t be able to do as a result.
For example, when I decide to go out with my friends, I am saying no to spending time with my family. When I decide to take a nap, I am saying no to my “honey-do” list. It’s all a matter of priorities, in every choice we make. The point in all this is not that naps or going out with friends are bad, but to be mindful of what you’re saying yes and no to, and be sure to discuss it with each other. Doing so will keep your communication together open and will most certainly avoid unnecessary conflict.
